The official event poster for the Octagon’s return to Japan has been released, and unfortunately it’s nowhere near as aesthetically appealing as its predecessor from the Land of the Rising Sun. Anyhow, the billboard still gets the job done. “UFC on FUEL TV: Silva vs. Stann” takes place March 3rd (March 2nd in North America due to the time zone differences) inside Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. A middleweight shootout between former PrideFC middleweight champion Wanderlei Silva and Brian Stann headlines the gig. FUEL TV will broadcast the main card live beginning at 10PM ET/7PM PT. The UFC’s Facebook page and/or FX will offer the night’s prelims. Here is the show’s current lineup: Preliminary Card: Hyun Gyu Lim vs. Marcelo Guimares Kyung Ho Kang vs. Alex Caceres Kazuko Tokudome vs. Cristiano Marcello Takeya Mizugaki vs. Bryan Caraway Riki Fukuda vs. Brad Tavares Mizuto Hirota vs. Rani Yahya Dong Hyun Kim vs. Siyar Bahadurzada Main Card: Hector Lombard vs. Yushin Okami Diego Sanchez vs. Takanori Gomi Stefan Struve vs. Mark Hunt Wanderlei Silva vs. Brian Stann
